"Something is happening that is not happening"

Valérie Kolakis
Something is happening that is not happening

What happens and what isn’t happening is a matter of scale. In Valérie Kolakis´ first solo exhibition in Berlin, the visitor is confounded with a seemingly empty gallery space. Working with ideas of repetition to transfigure our habits of perception, Kolakis presents pieces that appear to shift in form and materiality, standing at a fragile balance between the visible and the invisible, the familiar and the strangely disquieting. As the visitor acclimates to the room, what first appears as bare walls and blank surfaces reveals traces of obsessive, repetitive processes. Acting with and onto the architecture of the space, this exhibition is an interplay of parts that fluctuate between something seen as a collection of disparate parts and an integrated whole.

In Something is happening that is not happening, Kolakis presents new and previously shown work, including a large-scale site-specific installation comprised of 27,615 wax casts of the artist's finger. Kolakis has been in residency at PROGRAM since January 2007.
